    Do you know of any app to contribute for roads, since I use the car a lot and I could map some streets in my country.

    I am not referring about tap water. When I asked for water I would get a gasified water, and to me that's just not normal since we only use when we are feeling bad after a meal so it helps. This is not a problem when you notice the bottle but sometimes you open and only then you notice.
    Or I am wrong and there are more places that drink gasified water like normal water?

    Hi

    I think we could start a new trend to make the world better by trading advertisement for tips and how to behave in a society. The important thing is not to be invasive or change the user experience in any way.

    So do you see the top bar where we don't have nothing? I think it would be a great place to have a new phrase on every refresh like this:
    "A bottle of plastic is to put in the yellow trash can".
    "Open Source is important so we don't rely on company's for everything"
    "If you smoke please don't throw butts in to the ground, buy a cheap portable ashtray"
    "Remember that not everyone is having good day"
    "Don't throw cotton swab in to the toilet"
    "When brushing your teeth turn of the water in the dead times or better use a cup to use less water"
    "2OATH is always important to have"
    "Password manager is a must have now a days (having the same password in everything defeats the purpose)"
    "Read more than the titles before you make conclusions"
    "When driving don't forget to use the lights when turning/changing lanes"
    "Think twice when using paper"
    "Beverages are not water"
    "Focus a distant point from time to time if you are long hours in front of the monitor)"
    "When you are putting music in public you are invading the other space"
    "Wait for the people to exit the train before entering"
    "If you drink don't drive not because of you but because of the other people"
    "Put the phone down while driving, everyone says that can do that before hitting someone"

    Before of witch phrase it would say the topic.

    I think for this phrases we can't have nothing political, religious or other topics that could change people views or that could offend.
    Maybe we could have topics for country's because of the costumes.

    Little things like this, I hope I could express the idea(more directs and simple maybe?). And if this is welcome maybe the correct way of doing this is making a repository on gitlab(every file would be a topic maybe) so everyone could add new phrases and use the list for other sites. Of course we would need to get a few trust worthy people that have a good sense of witch phrases to accept or create rules for them.
    Maybe there is a better way of creating a public DB but I don't know any at least.
    And if people wanted could select the topics they wanted(all or some or none).

    This could also show the importance of donating and support open projects so we don't need to get money from third party's in any way and better yet, use the empty space to make the world a better place.

    Terrible idea but we could use some gold system to support the site, and 1 month later the quantity of gold won disappear and say something "received gold", and in the profile never show how many post it has with gold. This last part I think is important so we don't have nothing similar to karma.

    The battery life is good because the software is made for the hardware and same for performance. The extra that you pay to apple is because of the software, if you are going to put linux don't expect it to behave like a macbook in terms of everything.
    Don't tell people to do this, that's a wast of money.

    People to sell their work need to make things that will make you click if you are mad at that I don't wanna see you looking at adds or titles from the news.
    The content of the video was good and that's the thing that matter. Sure you can disagree with what he said, but he gather information pass it to others.

    To be honest in tildes you don't see the thumbnail so if you click on the video it was not that make you click.

    I like the idea of putting gitea on an hidden service even if I am not going to use I would like to learn how to do it.

    I understand about the possibility of having a failure but look at the services I am going to run, if they stop working is not a biggy.
    All I need to backup is the share, confg files and the gitea database.I understand all of that, if I was running a business.
    Maybe is good idea to backup to the cloud like others have said.

    The node of cryptocurrency on the cloud defeat the purpose of decentralization and I want to support the network.

    Nice to hear about the CPU, 1600 is more or less a i5.
    I am going to backup locally, less money long term and more secure in a way.

    European here, I probably don't have that limitations.
    What normally they do is limiting my traffic speed at the most, I will have to motorize the network to see if they do that. And if they do... well, I really doubt a call to them will change anything XD.
    Normally when a football game is played the ISP throttle the streaming services. Nothing happens to them, some laws exist just to be written and read not used.

    Edit: Home server are not worth it, but running nodes in clouds defeat almost all the purpose of being decentralized.

    What do you recommend has OS for the virtualization, promox? Do you recommend a machine for each service? About having multiple machines should I have multiple disks for each virtualization or the SSD disk can handle the read/write of all systems?

    My CPU is a desktop CPU, do you think it can handle all the virtualization? 6 threads not that bad I guess.

    I don't know if redundancy is important in to me(at least for now), I would say backups are more important, if the system stop working I can wait a few days/hours until I have time to fix it.

    Thanks for you insight.
    For the nodes, a full node is different than a miner, I don't intend to have a GPU on the server, only for the initial installation :p.

    The Minecraft part makes sense, probably I will only think about that when all the rest is running and see if it can handle it after.

    When I ask about the disks is because I don't want the disk to be a bottleneck since multiple services would be using it at the same time. Maybe I should search how much the nodes uses the disk and how much space they can have in the future.

    I have edit the point 2(word), if you have any insight about virtualization. The only thing that comes to mind is more secure to have things separated, but don't know if the performance I am going to loose is a good trade.
